Great location for a trip to San Francisco. Just off Union Square - close to lots of bars and restaurants. Near to many shops/malls, the trolley bus and all the hop on hop off bus tours. Hotel was clean, staff friendly and helpful. A good breakfast was in on our deal. Rare for the rest of our trip. Ask for... More

Great location, a little uphill from the BART train line (but only a small incline), easily walked in about 10 mins for the average person with suitcases on wheels. The BART train -from San Fransisco Airport-catch the Blue line, then x2 stops down get off the train and buy a ticket about $9.00 each from the machine. Union Square -shops... More

Comfortable hotel. Clean, Central, friendly staff and nice breakfast. Fridge in the room. Ice and drinks machine in every floor. It's a very noisy place. Hotel provides ears plugs. I would stay here again.

Warning: Do not book through a travel service or you will end up in the "old" section of the hotel which has double beds instead of queen size beds due to small room size. Plus, these rooms are rather noisy. Chose this hotel based on TA reviews and believe those positive reviews must have been for the Premier part of... More

It was our first time in SF so the location was perfect. It's in the middle of everything, coming from airport is super easy with Bart. So near to shopping area, also you can walk and take the tram, it was perfect. But the hotel is so old, and old fashioned furnished. Need to be renew all the carpets, bathroom,... More

I had to go to Moscone for a several day event and The Handlery was great because it was a short walk there and it was very convenient for taking BART from/to the airport. It's also a very short walk to a cable car and all kinds of SF Muni routes down on Market St. It seems pretty old, but... More

As always, Great Room, Great Service, and Great Breakfast next door at the Daily Grill! Walked to Macy's afterwards and appreciated the discount using the Handlery key card!

But the hotel needs a good refurbishment. Noisy air conditioning, tired tiles and showers, worn carpet. But excellent location for shops, buses, BART and the tram is right outside. Restaurants are a little hard to find, not a great selection nearby but nice streets to wander about. Hard to rank this place: 5 for location, 2.5 for the rest.
